WADA visit stumps lifters

Indian weightlifters were left surprised when a team of World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) officials swooped down unannounced at the NIS Patiala a couple of days back to collect dope samples from 21 of them.

A team of doctors from Hungary visited the national weightlifting camp currently being held at the NIS for out-of-competition dope tests.

Indian Weightlifting Federation vice-president Sahdev Yadav said that the WADA team took samples from 21 weightlifters, including a few junior campers.

“A WADA team came at the NIS two days ago and took samples from all the campers there, including a few junior lifters. Except for the five trainees who were on leave at that day, all the lifters gave samples,” he said.
